By the time you get to the pool session tomorrow (but after you've helped at the work day), the Welsh will have lost to the English in this year's Six Nations rugby.
It's our AGM in a few weeks, and one of the things we need to do is to elect new committee members. All committee posts are up for re-election, so if you would like to stand as Chairman, Secretary, Membership Secretary, Treasurer, Welfare Officer, or just as a general helper, then please tell the secretary! (Closing date Feb 22nd)
The Club only functions because of the committee - they ensure the bills get paid, boats get repaired, the smoke alarm is working and that the showers have hot water. Come and help!
PS - we've had people step forward for most of the posts (but you can stand too), but the post of Welfare Officer is currently vacant. This is an extremely important part of the Club - full training will be given - so please do consider volunteering to help.
If you'd like to come on the easier WW trip (grade 2/3 rivers, plenty of support available) then please let me know in the next few days as I need to pay for the bunkhouse. If you're not already on the email@example.com mailing list then sign up now!
Our Club needs a bit of TLC to keep it looking it's best! Please come down next Saturday (23rd February) and help - tidying, cleaning, painting, and other general bits & bobs. We'll be here all day (9am - 3pm), so please drop in for an hour or two during the day to help. Many hands make light work and all that!
If you're able to spend a few hours giving something back to the Club, please stand as a committee member! Please contact Michaela (Secretary) to stand. We do need more people!
Well, I know loads of people have been out paddling since the last newsletter. What have you been up to? Drop us a line and let us know - newsletter deadline is Feb 22nd.
Well, I think that this was a record weekend for the Rainchasers trip! Various people paddled the Dee, the Aberglslyn Gorge, the Seiont, the Conwy (twice!), Ogwen and the Wnion! Thanks to everyone who made it such a successful trip.
The next whitewater trip is the Easier Grade 2/3 Trip in a few weeks!
It is (as you no doubt knew already) Australia Day tomorrow. In solidarity with our Commonwealth cousins, we will be filling the pool with Fosters lager. And crocodiles.
Enjoy the pool session!
